eDrawings cannot find installed Document Manager API

I just installed Solidworks eDrawings x64 Edition (version 12.0.0.5015) on a machine that does not have Solidworks already installed.  When I open Solidworks files in eDrawings, I get the following prompt:

I installed the Solidworks 2012 Document Manager API provided by the "download and install" link.  However, eDrawings does not appear to recognize/find the install.  The "OK, I have installed now" button causes the prompt to reappear, and this warning and all of the watermarks continue to appear when I open SW files.

 

Is there a way to point eDrawings to the installed SDM API?
